Ozarks Abroad class, The Colombian Amazon: Culture, History and Tropical Ecology, culminates in adventure to the Amazon.
Meghan embraces ‘Pura Vida’ lifestyle of Costa Rica.
Although I joined the Spanish program very late, I’m still able to graduate on time because Dr. Clary was so willing to work with me. He mentioned that I had to have an immersion experience and immediately started helping me with the process. An immersion experience that lasts longer than 6 weeks is required for the major. Going through USAC, the University Studies Abroad Consortium, I was able to travel to Heredia, Costa Rica to live with a host family and attend classes. I took small-sized classes with other American students, including an Intermediate Spanish class, Conversation, Composition, and a Latin American Culture class. Although the academic part of the experience was enriching, the most life-changing part of my experience was definitely living with a host family. My host family was so wonderful, and my host mom even taught me how to cook Costa Rican food.
WHAT OUR STUDENTS DO
University of the Ozarks President Richard Dunsworth, J.D., has been elected to the board of directors for the Association of Presbyterian Colleges and Universities (APCU).
University of the Ozarks awarded 87 bachelor’s degrees to graduating seniors during its 183rd Commencement ceremony, held May 13, on the campus mall.
One of the core values of University of the Ozarks is “the service of all of creation,” and that driving principle was on full display during a recent mission trip to El Salvador by the student organization Rotaract.
